Comment: LOOOOVe your ATC!! Ohhh it is gourgeous!! I would not have thought about something like this!! Thank you so much!!!
Ps... Adorot tu ATC. Es preciosa, hecha con mucha delicadeza. Muchas gracias!!
Comment: Pkease don't giv eup on drawing, You did a wonderful job. Remember that nothing is perfect and as bob ross says "There's no such thing as mistakes, Only happy little accidents" Wonderful fairy atc. I love it.
Comment: I love your boards! Love that clock (?) with the globes at 12 and 6. And the Atomium is quite amazing! I'm sure that wasn't there in 1964, right? I'd certainly remember that. Is the photo of the flag on top of part of the Atomium? Nice board on your town, too. I have no idea, but until today, between the "Traveling Belgium" poster on your board and the Belgian State Archives site (where I'm trying to find out if I can get a copy of the Belgian marriage certificates from 1838 for my very British great-great-great-grandparents and her sister and brother-in-law - no idea what they were all doing in Belgium to get married at two different times) that the language is Dutch! I, for some reason, thought it was French and German, much like Switzerland. I guess I never had to speak when we were in Belgium - my parents must have done all the talking! Anyway, thanks for sharing some awesome boards!
Comment: Profile says sent, nothing received...UPDATE: received on Valentine's day 2/14/2017. Thanks for the extra teas! Can't wait to try the Tetley's.
Response: 30 december: Received a "1" without any previous contact or even knowing something went wrong :-(
(Obviously I contacted the bad rater
EDIT January 3: asked for adress to resend twice, still no adress received
EDIT: January 9: please don't do this to me :-(
Can I please have your address so I can resend the teas?
Another edit (January 13): I've sent an email to her, hoping for any sign of live
LAST EDIT: Even without any sign of life from her, I still resent. Hope she'll come out now and rerate.
I have sent a bunch of teas instead of just 3. I really hope it get resolved now :EDIT 15/02: finally got re rated, but still a "3" Altough I didn't do anything wrong :'-(
Comment: This swap was late, but you did put a lot into it, so I'm still giving a "5" rating. If you sent such a swap out on time, I would have given hearts for all the effort put into it. Always check the deadling "date items must be sent by" for the due date, as this title of the swap does not always correspond with the time it's sent out. The idea of sending this out at the end of November is so that people have a month to check out the board and use it in their inspiration leading up to Christmas. Always check the due dates! ha ha. Happy Holidays to you.
Comment: Hello Valerie! I love the postcard, thank you! I had no idea about "pop"'s Dutch meaning. Thank you for telling me. ðŸ˜„ My maiden name was Ticefelt (Ticefeldt)--possibly Dutch...have you ever heard of it? Happy Holidays to you! Patricia
Response: You are very welcome! But no, sorry, never heard from that name...
Never heard it in Belgium or the Netherlands before, but it sounds rather old. The "dt" on the end does sound Dutch to me though.
Comment: You did not send on time and did not tell me there would be a delay. I'm rating you with a 5 and hope that you will keep up with future swaps. I just checked and you haven't rated your partners or been rated for another swap that I set up.
Response: I'm truely sorry! I really thought that I had warned everyone that I would be late. I am very sorry!
I am so thankful that after this you have still rated me a 5, thanks a lot for that!
I will certainly rate all my partners, like I always do!
Thanks a lot!
Comment: I would have given a heart but you were late sending... On the 1st of Nov, I commented on your profile, asking if all was ok.. Nov 4th, you sent me a PM and said things had gone terribly wrong and you were fulfilling your swap duties at that time.. Nov 7th, I still had not received this e-mail swap.. As we all know, a 3 should be rated here, BUT, I KNOW first hand how things can happen... I just do not understand not receiving the e-mail swap from you at that time you were on the internet, instead of me having to ask , AGAIN, about this swap, 3 days later..I do not want to rate a 3, it is my choice, but, I did want to put this explanation here..I hope all is better for you.. ;-) the e-card was really cute, though..... Kindest regards...
Response: I am truely sorry! Lots of problems happening here unfortunately... Thank you very much for understanding!
I did was online that time, but I had a lot of swaps I needed to fulfill at that time. I did manage to do all of them, but it took me some time...
I am very sorry, but also very thankfull you rated me a 5 after all. Thank you so much!
Comment: i have found this envelope among rated swaps, i am so sorry for the late rating. thank you for all the cards, funny to see you sent me some from my country:)
Response: No problem at all! I hope you don't mind I sent cards from your country as an extra. I didnt understand the letters on the card and didnt know. I'm sorry!
Thanks for the rating & Happy Halloween! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the yummy chocolates Valerie. I couldn't help myself and sampled three of them when I opened the envie, lol! Thanks for the much appreciated bonus Reeses too, you know the way to my heart ;) I shall have to hide them from my family...hahahaaa
Comment: First of all, this would have been a heart worthy swap but you were late, and while I get your reason, you had a week to complete this swap so that makes it a little meh. However I really liked your swap and it seems like you've had some good times, so thanks for sharing :)
Comment: Thank you very much for your pictures! I loved how you described every one so carefully and how you told the story of your vacation :) Made it really real to me. Lisboa looks beautiful, I meant to go there for a really long time already, hopefully I will be able to go there soon :)
Comment: Thank so much for the wonderful postcards you chose to send - they fit my profile perfectly! Four fabulous Disney character cards - just terrific! That shimmery Lion King card is so unique and beautiful. The Tale of Tom Kitten and door cards are very nice, too. Cute envie with all the fun Minions! Thanks again.
Comment: Thanks for sending the links to all your boards. I looked at each of them. One of my favorite pins is the black and white print with splashes of red in the Snow White board. Another is Tarzan kissing Jane's forehead in the Tarzan board. Your Rescuers board was nostalgic; I remember seeing that one at the theatres when I was a little girl.
Response: Thank You very much for your lovely rating!! I'm so glad you had a look at all my boards and liked some of the pins!
I really love the Rescuers too! Mostly out of nostalgia too :-)
Many hugs!! xxx
Comment: Thanks for your lovely comment! :)
You're right, in Finland, Valentine's Day is called Friend's Day. :) So thank you and happy belated Friend's Day to you too!
I don't drink alcohol for believes... sort of. :) I enjoy the taste and effect and I don't believe that there's anything wrong for someone to drink alcohol. But I believe it doesn't mix well with doing lots of yoga which I do, and it certainly doesn't assist with meditation. So I prefer to abstain from it these days. :)
I could understand most of the sentences in German and the rest I checked with Google Translate! :P Vielen Danke!
Response: You are very welcome! Glad you liked my comment :-)
I can imagine that you don't drink alcohol, it is really not that healthy too.
I take a lot of medication (14 pills a day), so I'd absolutely should avoid alcohol too, but it's not always that easy... Haha. The meat is weak!
Comment: Sorry, I had written a comment but it didn't a[pear on your profile! The internet hasn't been very nice to me lately, what with emails not getting sent and and our servers failing twice.
Enjoyed you comments - all 3 of them :-)
Response: Yes! So glad you liked my comments! :-D thank you very much ^^
Meh, Internet failing really sucks!! Had it too some weeks ago. They installed a new modem and luckily it's solved now!
Comment: Thank you for the recommendation. The book sounds very different to what I would read. Not something I would pick up if I was in a shop or library, So thank you for giving me something different to read!
Response: I think that's one of the great intentions from this swap. I really loved the book!
Thank you for your rating :-)
Comment: Thank you for the nice comment on the Profile Love: Quick swap .I have learned there are some really mean spirited people her. Thank God there aren't many and the majority are so much nicer. Just am happy I am not that unhappy!
Would love to do a private swap. That sounds good!
Response: Glad you liked my comment :-)
Yes indeed, many people here that aren't very nice & even very mean :-(
Very nice you'd like to do a private swap!! I will send you a private message imediately. :)
Comment: Aww!! Wonderful boards! I would like to live in your city or at least in your country!!! By the way, I started to study Dutch two months ago:)) Ik hou van chocolade:))
Bedankt voor het delen en tot ziens!
Response: Leuk dat je Nederlands leer! Je hebt het perfect gezegd :-)
Just in case you didn't really understand, translation in English:
Nice you are learing Dutch! You said it perfectly :-)
You are welcome!
Comment: It's wonderful to meet you as well Valerie!
It does seem like we have a lot in common! Geeks unite- haha!
Anyway, thanks so much for the wonderful profile comment! Perhaps we could even become friends? :'D
Response: Thank you for the rating! Of course I'd love to be friends! :-)
Will send you a request :D
Comment: Having computer trouble at the time your PC arrived -- sorry! Thanks for the adorable card; I loved the bright colors, the mistletoe and the puppy :) I hope that your holidays have been bright and wonderful as well.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome boards! I loved both of them so much! I really enjoyed looking through all the pins and I even repinned some. I hope you don't mind! I can't wait to swap with you again!
Comment: I am so sorry about what happened and you had to resend. I received the greatest package of stamps today. It was so well worth waiting for. I hope all is going better for you and you can come back to swapping if you choose to do so. Have a good day.
Comment: Ik wil je graag bedanken voor je fantastische envelop VOL MET KAARTEN, niet alleen 4, wel meer dan 4x4! En ik vind alle kaarten geweldig: de Disney-kaarten, maar ook heel erg mooi de Kuifje-kaarten, en de vintage kaarten zijn ook super! Als ik je 5 harten kon geven, deed ik dat, dank je wel!
Comment: Hello Valerie! Thank you very much for the postcard of "Venus Frigida" by Rubens. And thank you very much for the words of support, it means a lot for me! To tell you the truth, I am very glad that we had the Maidan and revolution. It revived our dignity. The whole nation united to change the system and we believed that we can change everything for the better. But today I have doubts that we will eliminate corruption, because all of our politicians are hypocritical place-hunters. Lets hope for the better :) Have a nice day! Katya :)
Response: Hello Katya! You are very welcome of course! I am glad you liked my card & the message :). I think it needs a lot of courage to hold on... I think indeed it might be better this way... Apperantly, something NEEDED to happen... It couldn't go one like this. I hope things will chance now, for you and your country :)
Hugs, Valerie xxx
Comment: Thanks for your bookmark! I really liked the message on it ^^
Lieve: Escribes muy bien en espaÃ±ol, Â¡muchas gracias por tu mensaje!
Valerie: Although I'm more into Marvel than DC Comics, I loved that gorgeous Superman postcard =P
Response: Thank you very much for your rating! :-) Glad you liked it!
Sorry, I don't really know the difference betweend Marvel & DC Comics... But glad you liked the Superman card anyway! :) Lieve says thank you as well! ^.^
Comment: Thank you. Card arrived today.Right lower edge was torn off, but it must have happened during delivery "across the pond: as my friend calls it. Thank you. A pretty card. Not sure, is it a place to worship?
Response: So sorry to hear that it got damaged in the mail :(
But glad you liked it anyway :)
Comment: Some nice pins. I repinned a few. I thought it was interesting that most of your pins were of female faeries. Personally i prefer males. You will have to check out my Sexy Middle Earth Elves board.
Response: Haha, that is very curious indeed! I think about girls when I think about faeries... Weird though! :-)
I did check out (&follow!) your Sexy Middle Earth Elves board: it's great too! :-)
Thank you for the rating and the heart! :-) <3
Comment: Very cool board! Way after my childhood, but some things were also when I was a kid (like troll dolls and library cards). A lot of this was during my children's childhoods, so I remember it, too! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Thank you for the comment! I hope your girlfriend and you are doing much better now, it's never fun going to the hospital. You do what you gotta do. We just had a snow week here last week that made everyone go crazy, lol, so I've had my hands full too. As for the ESO beta, yes, I'm playing the heck out of it and love it so far. (lvl 29 now!)
I wish you both all the best and thank you again for the wonderful swap~! <3
Comment: Thanks for sharing your boards with me (though the sleeping beauty link didn't work for me). Though the boards aren't about specific characters, they were neat to look through to see all the different characters and pins. Thanks for sharing.
Comment: What wonderfully encouraging things you wrote for me, especially while you were in difficult circumstances!
Thank you so very much, and I hope your sweetie is doing well and recovers rapidly. Best wishes to you both! ;-) ;-)
Comment: Hoi hoi, wat leuk om je hier weer tegen te komen. Mijn internet doet het weer zoals het hoort te doen, we zijn inmiddels overgegaan naar een andere provider, dat we dat niet eerder hebben gedaan, dit internet is veel beter en sneller. :) Dank je wel voor je leuke blauwe board. Blauw is 1 van mijn lievelingskleuren. Je hebt een paar pins hetzelfde als op mijn board, kun je toch zien dat we vele dingen beiden leuk vinden.
Comment: I'm sorry for the late rating. Thank you so much for sharing your songs! I really like All I want for Christmas is You, also. I thought this version of Last Christmas was really nice. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Holy moly, Valerie, this is awesome. It ripped pretty badly in the mail, but Canada Post bundled it up before they delivered. I hope not much is missing -- I doubt it because there are so many books in here. Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your lovely board! Your board embodies all the things I love most about Christmas. I especially loved the baby with the Christmas lights and the pic of the SLC temple. Thank you! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for sharing this board with me. You had a great variety of masks, some of which I would have never even thought of myself. Very creative of you. I enjoyed and repined several.
Comment: Thanks for sharing your board! :) I'd love to visit Argentina too (and 50 other countries as well haha) but money is indeed a problem. When I'm 50 and rich (I decided it already :P) I'm going to travel a lot!
Comment: wow!!! that is an impressive list!! I would love to have that shower head too! I'm assuming that you collect stamps and love Harry Potter!! LOL!! Thanx for sharing!! Merry Christmas and I hope you get at least 1/4 of whats on your list!!!
Comment: I loved your board! You can tell that you really enjoyed putting this board together. :-) I was glad to see that you had included other things besides knitted slippers. Great job!!
A Very Merry Christmas to your and your family.
Comment: I saw the orange LP (record) on your board & it reminded me of when I moved from Taiwan, overseas back to America. I had several colored albums of neon colors & would you believe they were all lost in shipping. Gotta figure! I really enjoyed your board. How can anyone mess up on the color orange? These individual color pinterest swaps are really neat. You focus on one color and you can see the beauty of it. thanx for sharing a great board. Thanksgiving blessings, ellie
Comment: OMG VALERIE! Thank you soso much for this wonderful envelope full of bags and other goodies! I love everything you sent me and your envie made me so freakin' happy! Thank you SO much, my dear. I'd love to send you something, too, so if you're interested in private swap let me know. :) Hugs, Nika
Response: Oooh, I am really glad you liked it!! :) It was my intention to make you happy: so mission accomplished :D I'd love to do a private swap, so I'll send you a private message :) Hugs!!!!
Comment: Hello Valerie :)
Thank you so much for the friendship books and sheets that you have sent :) It really is fun for me to see them almost full, and about to travel back home.
Thank you for joining my swap!
Response: You are welcome! Thanks for the rating and the heart :)
Comment: Yay! Yay! Yay! Thank you SO MUCH for all the Bags & FBs!!! You've made me so happy! I'll be signing into these tonight & sending them along there way within a week or so. Thank you again! :o) Great swap!!!
Comment: Thanks for the assortment of stickers! especially the old school Disney ones. They were my faves... I havent seen a Pocahontas sticker in years! My daughter has already grabbed some of them up (Especially the spongebob ones) thanks again!
Response: You are very welcome!
I am glad you liked it :)
Thank you for the rating and for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for your lovely comment and quote! The quote is one of my favorites from Harry Potter, which are some of my very favorite books! I'm glad I could offer some small inspiration regarding your own profile. Nee, ik spreek geen Nederlands, but I spent a semester studying at Universiteit Maastricht, so I picked up a decent amount of Dutch while I was there--not enough, though, that I would feel comfortable saying I speak the language. Anyhow, thank you again, and it was lovely to hear from you!
Response: You are very welcome! I really enjoyed reading you're profile ^.^
I absolutely LOVE Harry Potter as well and I am really happy you liked the quote :).
Good luck on speaking some Dutch!! :) Thanks for the rating and for the heart :) Dankjewel!
Comment: I enjoyed your answers to the All About Me questions. I used the link to view your favorite
Monument. Thank you for sharing your information about your life. You have a beautiful name. Your motto made me smile
Comment: Originally rated as 1 on Nov 29, 2010 // EDIT Dec 7th, 2012: If I could, I would give hearts with the three! Swap was sent two years late, but it's here now, I have just received gifts for this December. Thank you! :)
Comment: Kind of disappointing even though I guess it techincally met the swap requirements. Not a good idea to send loose chocolate when it is 80-90 degrees, it melted and ruined everything in the package so I had to throw most of it out.
Comment: Hi Valerie
Great cards from Belgium - I loved them all - perfect. Thank you so much - a real treat in my letterbox,
The card I am missing from Belgium is one from Luxembourg province. i would love to swap if you have one?
Cheers Penny Hamilton
Comment: WOW!!! I'm not sure which to praise first! I LOVED!!! the post card!! Even my 7 year old saw it and went "Wow! That's cool that the money has the holes on it." She didn't even realize that I have a 5 yen on my keychain from when I went to Japan when I was pregnant with my oldest. :)
The bandages are ssooooo cute!! I can't find shaped ones here aside from the occasional heart one. Very cool! These made me glad I did it international. Definitely different then what we get here :)
I hope you've gotten some cool ones back that you've not been able to find there as well. :)
Response: Haha, I am very happy you liked what I sended you :)
Of course you are very welcome!
Comment: It finally got here. It's a nice pc, but in the future you really should communicate with your partners better, and let them know whats going on. Hope you have the hang of it now, and Happy Swapping:)
Response: Thanks a lot for all your help and patient! I am happy you like your card :)
I will take all your advice to heart! :)
Comment: thanks for all the goodies! although i couldn't find the mini cookies packet. am i blind or something? :) i wish, i could give you a heart, but you were a week late with the swap and you haven't even let me know about it...
Comment: Thank you for the pretty bird postcard and I liked the stamp too. It was nice to receive something from Belgium because your country is part of my heritage. I hope we meet in a swap again, soon. bb2
Comment: LOVED all the goodies Valerie sent in the swap. The clothes buttons were great! So fun to see all the differences and all in "my" color palette! The pin buttons were great too! My kids have squirreled some away already =P~ Thanks for the great swap!
Comment: WOW! I received your nice package in the padded envelope and am definitely happy with what you sent to me!! You have given me so much! My husband and I ate the chocolate coins tonight - they were really good. The teas all look good, as do the other candies. The felt birds are fun too. Thank you also for sending me a postcard of your area. Thank you, thank you for "making it a fun Friday night."
Comment: thanks for all the lovely PC i finally got the package hehe and i loved your suprise you did a great job making the pc if you do want some more tips i will add them in our next swap!!
Response: Thanks very much :) I am so glad you liked it.
Comment: Thanks for the comment! Particularly because it didn't occur to me that international visitors might find my obscure use of words difficult - I'm going to add a definition of "ephemera" because I'm sure you're not the only one. Making sure I can be understood is important, so thank you very much :)
Actually, your username really interests me, as I originally come from Guernsey in the Channel Islands, and "Amarylis" is the name of the flower which is also known as "The Jersey Lily" (named after our next door island).
Comment: Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!! And welcome to swap-bot, I'm sure that you will have alot of fun here. Hockey is definitely alot of fun, you should try to watch a game if you get the chance!
Response: Thanks for your lovely comment. I enjoyed swap-bot already!
It's only a bit searching on how and what.
I just discovered the comments (angelface)
